A picture’s worth a thousand words…and possible jail time

NOTE: Another great collaborative article between the Thibodaux Police Department and Samantha Morgan at NBC33 Baton Rouge.

THIBODAUX, LA (NBC33) – Love can make even the most mature person do crazy things. Unfortunately, technology has created a growing problem among teens and young adults that can have very serious consequences.

“When dealing with kids, they’re sending pictures to each other because they don’t think about the long-term consequences,” David Melancon, Thibodaux Police Department, explained.

“When young people are in relationships, they think they love that person and they are going to be together forever. But when the breakup happens, the other person ends up with compromising photos of you.”

My lifelong mission in life is to offer my support for the police officers who need to be supported and protected by general public like us. My inspiration to do this comes from my personal experiences of some of the greatest police officers whom I have witnessed do great deeds for the good of humanity.

  1. Thanks for sharing this post, Samina. It certainly is a must read for any parent of teenagers. Unfortunately, these kids don’t realize the long term repercussions of their actions. Have a wonderful Sunday!

    • Yes Jill this problem is becoming widespread and teens have committed suicides because of the blackmail on the Internet. I do hope sense prevails in the teen community and they learn from such horrible incidents and become careful in what they do on the web. Have a lovely Sunday Jill.

  2. this awareness should be spread all over the internet! so that more and more kids read it and realize the danger of these activities!

    I have learned my lessons in a harsh way, but not nightmarish way like so many of them learn!

    • You are so right sharmishtha kids must learn the lessons which are blasted over the television, Internet and all sources but unfortunately the situation does not improve as expected. Some schools in Canada have direct access to Police where children can report without fear if someone is threatening them or bullying them. Police has become quite involved after some suicides of teens. General awareness is there. Lets hope things improve more. It is I think better to learn the lesson and come out alive. God bless you and may God erase all bad memories from our minds. Amen.

        police, schools and parents should take instant action
